We encourage all of our couples to review our services on sites like "Wedding Wire and "The Knot" so for up to date comments, critiques and experiences of what to expect from your wedding day with me, then look to those sites for experience. Here are a few comments that I have stolen from those sites about my work.
"Jennifer has such a way about her that when she is taking pictures you barely realize she is there. Then when you talk to her about your ideas and what is going on during the day it seems like you have known her forever. She is wonderful. As for candids and action shots, I had a friend from California who was unable to make it and said that looking at the pictures made her feel like she was there. Even now looking at them I can remember everything that happened which is nice seeing that day went by like a whirlwind, but now I have pictures that represent our whole day.
"We wanted to thank you for the amazing job you did with our wedding! We love all of the pictures-they tell a wonderful story. I feel so lucky to have found you! Thank you again-
"The photographer went about her business snapping every imaginable picture. She blended in perfectly and took pictures without getting in the faces of guests. I didn't even know where she was most of the time. I still don't know how she managed to take over 1500 pictures. ALL of her pictures are wonderful. I am having trouble truly choosing one favorite. Beck & Call offers an nice variety of packages. Virtually something for everyone and every budget.We personnaly opted for the Princess Package and added a couple of extras. We chose not to go with an Engagement session as it didn't suit our needs. There was one available though. My daughter is getting the Elite Album and we will be ordering a package that includes several 8X10's, and 5X7's. Jennifer has a natural ability to put you at ease. From the first time my daughter and I met her, we clicked immediately and we did not speak with any other photographers. The connection was there throughout the entire shoot. She has a very direct, creative approach to her poses and loves to experiment. I highly recommend her and will not hesitate to use her services again.
"It was like you ddn't even know she was there, when she was taking pictures so the candid shots turned out natural and not like anybody was posing. Also the posed pictures she knew what light to use and how to make it work. We did my bridal portraits at a later time down at the river and those pictures turned out wonderful with the lighting she was climbing all over rocks just to get the best shots. She was with me through hair and make up and getting set up in the chapel, it was a small wedding and it was nice to have her help in setting little things up and she was right there with us through everything. I look at some of the pictures now and she took pictures of the little things I barely remember but it was all the little things that helped create the wedding. She just had us pose natural through everything and she knew what pictures to take posed and even more ideas than I had since the day of the wedding I was a little crazy she helped capture everything so I had memories of everything other than how crazy I was that day.
"She made it look effortless. Jen was great at geting action shots. I loved all of her ideas and they really worked perfect. She really works with you on what ever you want. I told her and "poof", like magic it was done! Jen is a wonderful person with a big heart. She doesn't do this for excessive amounts of money but because she truly enjoys capturing the moments of your big day. I will be using her again and already have gave several recomendations to others regarding her work. She is professional, honest, caring, just everything a bride needs on her day. One less worry about if the photos are going to turn out right. NO WORRIES WITH JEN"
"My dad is a minister and I have seen many weddings where the bride walked down the aisle and the groom could not see her because the photographer jumped in front of him. Jennifer did not do that. I had mentioned seeing that and she seemed taken aback that someone did that. She got amazing photos and at times I forgot she was there. That's quite a testament to her skill. My husband and I were aware she was there and did a few things that we knew would make good photos, but for the most part we wanted to focus on each other and the ceremony, not the photographer. Her posed pictures were adorable and she was very good at getting the poses she wanted.
"Jennifer was there for all of the important moments but was never in the way. My parents went to a wedding 3 months later and commented how no one else could take pictures without the photographer being in them and how it was difficult to see the bride in the ceremony because of the photographer. Jennifer was not at all like that. She was great with posed and action shots. Jennifer has a great personality and an ability to put people at ease. That helped in having us comfortable having her around.
"I loved every picture Jennifer took. I especially loved the posed portraits of my husband and I. She really did an excellent job capturing the essence of the location and the personality of the couple. My favorite posed portrait of my husband and I was where we were standing in front of the barn leaning one arm against the ladder and holding each other. Since we got married in the country at a country style garden, all the pictures that captured that country feel were greatly appreciated. I loved every picture Jennifer took.

Since we got married in the country at a country style garden, all the pictures that captured that country feel were greatly appreciated. Jennifer was extremely great with posing everyone. She made sure to tell everyone to just act natural when being photographed and even made jokes to get everyone to smile naturally instead of it being forced.
Jennifer is an amazing Photographer. The best part about her besides her ease to work with is that she absolutely loves what she does. She is very affordable and is definitely willing to work with those on a tight budget. She is reliable and with you every step of the way. Once the reception started she seemed to disappear only she hadn't, you just didn't notice her there capturing every moment. We sorted through a lot of overrated and overly confident photographers that to be honest I don't know how a couple of them could even call themselves professional photographers as a lot had very stiff and boring techniques. We are very happy with our decision to use Jennifer of Beck and Call Photography and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer. Meaning not just a wedding photographer as she doesn't focus on just one style of photography and I think that's what makes her stand out from all the others we looked at.

I am so glad I went with Beck and Call Photography. It is a small business run by Jennifer Catron. We absolutely loved working with her. She is incredibly nice, flexible, and professional. She totally bent over backwards to make our engagement and wedding photos incredible. You can tell she loves what she does. And her rates cannot be beat in the DC area!

What was your favorite wedding photo? Um that is the worst question I have ever encountered. Because there were 7000 pictures and they are ALL good!!! Pick one?!?! Not in a million years.
How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits? Great with candids, action shots, also had great ideas for poses that were not conventional. She has incredible style.
What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers? It was the best package for the price: mother's album for each mother, album for us, DVDs of all our photos, engagement pics that I traded that for a boudoir session as a gift for my husband, unlimited hours on the wedding day, rehearsal dinner was thrown in for a very small fee.
How did the photographer make you and family comfortable? She was an amazing person. She was very sweet and stayed out the way when needed but was introducing herself and friendly when needed.

What was your favorite wedding photo? I can't pick just one, but I loved the ones of me and my husband at the alter.
How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits? I barely remebered she was there!! She got so many great candid shots that really showed me and my husband as we truely are.
What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers? We only opted to get the pictures and not have an album made (my mom is a scrapbooker and making it), it was such a reasonable price we couldn't say no to it.
How did the photographer make you and family comfortable? Jennifer was amazing! I really can't say enough nice things about her! My friends thought that she was a family friend because she was just so natural with us. She made me feel completely at ease throughout the whole day and even gave us pointers, which was helpful because she has been to alot more weddings than me!!

What was your favorite wedding photo? My favorite wedding picture is the once of my two neices dancing during the reception. It was a great candid shot.
How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits? Jennifer arrived very early during the day, and followed the bridal party all throughout the day. Very few of the pictures she took were staged, and we were able to do many of them before the wedding ceremony began.
What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers? In our package we received engagement pictures, wedding coverage all day. DVD's with proofs of all of the pictures, a digitally enhanced album with over 200 pictures, and quite a few print outs.
How did the photographer make you and family comfortable? Jennifer was very flexible and was continually able to work without requests without any problems.

Beck and Call Photography is top notch. Jennifer was so great through the entire process from the first meeting all the way up to the wedding. She was with me literally all day and did such a wonderful job. Everyone loved her! You had no idea so was there taking pictures which is exactly what we were looking for. You'll get more action shots than you ever thought possible. Wedding photography is one place you should allocate money and these services were worth every penny and more.
